Pub wins food award

A PUB in Britwell Salome has won a national award for its use of local, seasonal and organic produce.

A PUB in Britwell Salome has won a national award for its use of local, seasonal and organic produce.

The Red Lion, which is run by Andrew Hill and Eilidh Ferguson, was one of three pubs selected for the prize in the 10th anniversary edition of Sawday’s Special Places Pubs and Inns of England and Wales.

The pub’s pork roast is made from meat produced at Red Lion Farm opposite and the couple grow baby carrots and radishes in planters and troughs in the pub garden. David Hancock, editor of the guide said diners could expect a “quirky sense of style, friendly staff and produce-led, modern British food”.

Miss Ferguson said: “I am so chuffed. We have quite a few home-grown bits and bobs and a friend in Goring Heath grows our salad leaves so it is nice for all our suppliers as well as for us.”

Earlier this year, the pub won a competition to find the country’s best roast, beating more than 300 other pubs.
